Toyota Corolla (E80)

The Corolla E80 was the fifth generation of cars sold by Toyota under the Corolla nameplate. It was also sold under the Sprinter nameplate.


Design [ edit ]

The front-wheel-drive wheelbase was now 95.6 in (2,430#160;mm).

It was the first Corolla to top the New Zealand top-ten lists, ending Ford’s dominance of that market. A shorter hatchback range, called the Corolla FX in Japan and the Corolla Compact in Germany. arrived in October 1984 on the front-wheel-drive platform. [ 1 ] The three- and five-door hatchbacks resembled the Corolla sedan with a truncated rear deck and trunk. Although there was a five-door liftback model of the basic Corolla, the shorter FX hatchback was sold alongside it.

The Corolla FX replaced the Toyota Starlet in North America.

A DOHC 16-valve engine, designated 4A-GE . was added in 1983 on the rear-drive cars. It was a 1.6#160;L (1,587#160;cc) I4 and produced an impressive 124#160;PS (91#160;kW), turning the Levin/Trueno (Japan), Corolla GT coupé (Europe) and Corolla GT-S (North America) into a what was arguably a sports car. [ 2 ] The three-door FWD hatchback was also available with this engine; it was known as the Corolla FX-16 in North America. This engine was also combined with the front-drive transaxle to power the mid-engined Toyota MR-2 .

The Sprinter sports cars, in two-door coupé and three-door liftback forms, were notable for being the line’s first use of pop-up headlamps, which the equivalent Corolla Levin sports models did not have.

Japan [ edit ]

The 1.3 litre 2A engine was replaced by the more modern 12-valve 2E engine along with a May 1985 facelift. The range began with the 1300 Custom DX and ended with the 1600 GT Limited, introduced in June 1986. [ 3 ] The FX hatchback lineup was considered a semi-separate line and received a different nose and different equipment levels than its sedan and liftback counterparts. The 1.3 was not available in the FX, targeted at sportier buyers, until the 2E engine became available. [ 1 ]

North America [ edit ]

The American specification was available with either SOHC or DOHC engines. From 1985 to 1988, NUMMI in Fremont, California built a rebadged version of the Sprinter sedan sold by Chevrolet as the Chevrolet Nova. During calendar 1985, Corolla sedans and Sprinter-type 5-door hatchbacks (sold under both Nova and Corolla nameplates) were added, with the Toyota-branded US built cars gradually superseding imports from Japan and Nova hatchbacks being offered from the 1986 model year.

All rear-wheel drive coupé models continued to be imported from Japan, as was the Corolla FX hatchback launched for 1987 and replacing the 3-door AE86. Nova’s successor, the Geo Prizm was another rebadged Corolla selling in the United States from 1989 to 2002.

While all the rear-wheel drive 80-series Corollas were AE86 chassis in North America, the VINs differentiated between the three equipment levels: the DX got AE85, the SR-5 got AE86, and the GT-S received an AE88 VIN.
